Following the success of his sell-out debut tour last year, during which he performed at more than 100 UK venues, Lee Ridley – aka Lost Voice Guy – is heading back out on the road next year to put a smile on the faces of people up and down the country once again.
The Britain’s Got Talent winner will poke fun at his life living as a disabled person in a post-apocalyptic world as he tries to cope with the fame and fortune since his memorable victory.
Lee is the first stand-up comedian to use a communication aid. He made his first stand-up appearance in February 2012 and took his first solo show to the Edinburgh Fringe in 2013. He has performed a show there every year since until COVID-19 came along.
As well as winning Britain’s Got Talent 2018 Lee also won the BBC New Comedy Award in 2014 and has appeared on some of the country’s most popular TV shows including The One Show, This Morning, Lorraine and BBC Breakfast.
The third series of Lee’s popular Radio 4 sitcom, Ability, which he co-writes and in which he also stars, will air next spring.
His debut book, I’m Only In It For The Parking – an autobiographical look at disability and the way we approach it – will be published in paperback in March.
He has performed for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex on the Royal Variety Performance, appeared on Britain’s Got Talent: The Champions, America’s Got Talent: The Champions, Live At
The Apollo and Comedians Giving Lectures.
Lee is an Ambassador for the charity Scope and is also a patron of Smile For Life, Find A Voice, Communication Matters and The Sequal Trust.
